while john was out of town this past weekend, i rearranged the family room furniture and began to paint the woodwork. when john arrived home, his only comment was, "hmmm, you been paintin'???"
so, last night we were sitting in the family room watching the tv over the back of the couch. "john," i said, "do you think you could move the..."
before i could finish my sentence, john said, "i knew it:/ " he continued... "my opinion is, 'no', i liked the room the way it was."
"well," i said... "it doesn't really matter to me. i had just seen a photo online of a room arranged like this with the tv placed in front of the windows..."
"i've said what i think," he interrupted.
(in other words, he had no desire to moved the tv stand, tv, cables, etc...)
"oh, ok, well, in the photo there was a big plasma screen like you have been wanting, and with the room like this, there would be enough room for one."
john's whole expression changed. "i'll think about it."
"think about it" my derriere!!!
john needed buttons sewn on a couple of pairs of his bermuda shorts; hence, he brought them to me. "i need you to sew some buttons on these for me."
"do you have the buttons???" i asked.
"no, but surely there are some buttons around here somewhere..." he thought aloud.
"i don't think you'll find any, dear, " i replied. "and, the new super walmart doesn't have a sewing center."
a few minutes later, john returned with my travel sewing kit. "you have buttons; it says right here on the box, 'buttons'," he proudly pointed to the word on the box as he handed it to me.
i slid the kit from its box and opened it. then i chuckled to myself. the "buttons" that were in the kit were shirt buttons (like a centimeter in diameter... like 1/3 the size needed for fastening his shorts, lmao).
"i don't think these will work; do you???"
i asked as i showed him the buttons.
i hated dashing his hopes;p
by the way, there are extra buttons sewn inside both pairs of shorts!!! and, when i get in the mood, i WILL oblige him. furthermore, HE HAS LIKE 8 PAIRS OF SHORTS just like the two pairs he brought to me to mend:/
God, i LOVE that man of mine:)))
(i really do... with all my <3)
love and God's blessings,
